William Timym was born in Vienna and acclaimed as one of the leading pre-war political cartoonists. In 1930 he was arrested as a Jew but managed to survive the Nazi concentration camps and fled to England in 1938. He was responsible for many children's comic strips in magazines and newspapers of the 1940s and 1950s with characters like ‘Bengo’ the boxer puppy and his many canine friends. Timym was a great admirer of Guy and in 1982 received a commission from an anonymous benefactor to create a three-quarter-life size bronze sculpture of 'Guy' for Zoological Society of London (ZSL).
